In this application case study of a FANUC food grade robot, a FANUC M-3iA/6A 6-axis robot uses iRVision Visual Tracking to locate randomly-oriented cookies on an infeed conveyor. The cookies are then picked and placed into a slotted magazine at 90 degree angles.
The M-3iA robot's unique design makes it possible to automate the assembly of a variety of applications that could not be done with traditional SCARA type robots. The extreme flexibility offered by the three-axis wrist enables the robot to pick up and insert parts at simple or compound angles, and twist parts into place.
